Plays

Each season we will read and discuss 15 (or so) important plays representing a variety of periods, locations, and voices.  These might be classic plays that have shaped global theater, contemporary plays that are addressing the complexities of our modern world, or just plays that we have heard interesting things about and want to investigate.  Listed below is our current season and beneath that is a document from which all the plays that we are reading are taken.  The Big List is a working document of texts we feel theater artists should be familiar with -- if there is a title you feel is missing, please reach out to us and let us know!
